Grado e Series - Page 23

post #331 of 1194
driver sizes for the reference and professional series are specified at grado's website. folks can take that info at face value or not. personally i see no reason to doubt that grado is using new and larger drivers in its e series cans.

except for images of actual drivers from actual owners. for some reason, you refuse to acknowledge actual measurements of the headphone as data. it’s truly odd to me. why reject this data?

I can't comment on the other headphones...but side by side, the PS1000e's drivers were a bit (like 1cm) larger than the PS1000's drivers under flashlight (but as I mentioned, I wasn't able to snag a proper photo of both side-by-side to show this). I have no idea why Grado would lie about this as it would be fairly simple to confirm once the products hit the marketplace, so I'm talking their specs at face value. Not sure why this is even a point?

Thank you. at least it’s confirmed that the PS1ke have 50mm drivers from someone who received them.   

 

I’m not suggesting Grado is lying - when I first brought this up, I just thought it was a typo for the RS1e because the pictures of already delivered RS1es (surpass upgrade models labelled as old i series) were very clear.

We need to let this rest until someone takes apart a driver or Grado responds to our inquiry... the driver diameter is really a non issue... if they sound good (and my new RS1 does) then they are good.

I don't know if this adds anything to the conversation but in the end I believe this is a conversation about something that no one has any real knowledge of since no one has taken theirs apart.

Also, it ultimately comes down to what the industry standard is for measuring the diameter of a driver.

I remember reading that they had to make the walls if the casing thinner (I.e. Make the holes in the casing bigger) to make room for the bigger drivers.

That pic looks like a crazed, bloody eye staring out of a cage.

Either that or it's time for my meds.

just checked with my dealer. he should start getting the e series in over the next couple of weeks. already has some transitional models with the red drivers including the rs1, gs1000 and ps1000. tempted to give those a listen anyways.

Absolutely do that and get back to us.

If the transitional models are available with the new red drivers and 15% off that would be worth looking into.

hmm... good thinking. my dealer reckons these in-between grados will become collectibles.

Agree. I will not mention anything more on the cosmetic aspect, and I would LOVE to be proven wrong :D

 

I will be visiting Planet Of Sound this week and will ask when they may expect the new "e" series to be in stock.
